FRANTZ

DIRECTED BY: François Ozon

STARRING: Pierre Niney, Ernst Stotzner, Paula Beer, Marie Gruber, Johann von Bulow and Anton von Lucke

 

ABOUT:

Set in Germany and France in the immediate aftermath of the First World War, FRANTZ recalls the mourning period that follows great national tragedies as seen through the eyes of the war’s “lost generation”: Anna, a bereft young German woman whose fiancé, Frantz, was killed during trench warfare, and Adrien, a French veteran of the war who shows up mysteriously in her town, placing flowers on Frantz’s grave. Adrien's presence is met with resistance by the small community still reeling from Germany’s defeat, yet Anna gradually gets closer to the handsome and melancholy young man, as she learns of his deep friendship with Frantz, conjured up in evocative flashbacks. What follows is a surprising exploration of how these characters wrestle with their conflicting feelings - survivor’s guilt, anger at one’s losses, and the overriding desire for happiness despite everything that has come before.
